Mother's Day

Mothering Sunday – 22nd March 2020

Mother’s Day Poem

Mother’s Day is a celebration that happens once a year, honouring mums across the world. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May.

This year in the UK Mothering Sunday will be celebrated on 22nd March 2020.

For children and young people in foster care this can be a very difficult day, it can also cause confusion for some them as they are unsure if they should celebrate the day with their new foster mother.

However, for many other children and young people, they are happy to acknowledge and celebrate all the help and support and love their foster mum has provided for them. Embracing how their foster mum has changed their life in more ways than one.  Giving them amazing memories that they can cherish forever.

Foster Carers make an unbelievable difference to children and young people’s lives with their ongoing support and providing caring and loving homes.

Testimonials

This job is probably one of my favourites. Every day is different, every day has new challenges and every day has new rewards. It’s not always easy but each challenge you go through with the child bonds you and makes you both stronger for each other.

We have been fostering for the last 8 years and feel proud to be a part of the Sunbeam family. At the beginning, we thought it’s a tough job, but the skills to foster initial training and the whole assessment procedure to become a carer was interesting, and it gave us both a broad insight into both the tough and rewarding side of what we were likely to encounter.

“Fostering is a rewarding experience as it allows you to actually make a difference for a child/young person. I feel happy being able to make such a difference whether it is for one day or several years.”

“When they told me that I had been approved for fostering, well I just cried. I was an emotional wreck and was so happy that I just couldn’t hold back my very, very, happy tears.”
